Handmade special occasion jewellery

When an off-the-shelf gift doesn’t say everything you want it to

If you’re looking a special gift that represents something very personal, custom designed jewellery is the perfect solution.

Whether it’s to celebrate an anniversary or the arrival of a new baby, in memory of a loved one or beloved pet, or ‘just because’, we can help you create a truly unique piece.

Whatever the reason, we’d be delighted to help you bring your ideas to life.

A present for a parent to cherish

This beautiful and highly personal pendant came about when we were approached to make a gift for our customer’s wife.

Turns out not only was she a surgeon, but also an aspiring children’s author and a talented  illustrator. With a little bit of research we found a sketch she had done of her young daughter, and that became the inspiration for this truly unique piece of jewellery.

We added our own flourish with a handmade flower hair pin—made with recycled platinum with a tiny Argyle pink diamond at its centre.


In Memoriam

This is a very touching story that shows great compassion.

Our customer’s wife had recently died after a long illness, leaving not only him bereft, but also his wife’s best friend of many years.

As a very thoughtful memoriam, our customer had us recycle his wife’s engagement and wedding ring into this heartfelt and meaningful pendant as a gift for his wife’s friend. Read the whole story here.



Bezel-set Fair Trade Ruby stud earrings

This sweet little pair of earrings represent a something of a milestone in this couple’s relationship and were created via a unique design process.

Our customer commissioned them for his wife’s 70th birthday.

Not only was the whole transaction conducted by landline using ‘word pictures’ (he had no mobile phone or email) but it was the first piece of jewellery he had ever purchased for his wife in their almost 50 years together.



I received my beautiful paw pendant yesterday it is more stunning then what the pictures make it out to be. Thank you to Melinda and Chris for doing such an amazing job on the pendant.

Melinda you are so easy to work with and always there to answer any questions or changes of mind in design.

You make beautiful jewellery and know how to not just give value for money but also know when the project just needs that little more pop to make it look amazing.

Thanks again for my beautiful pendant I highly recommend anyone make inquires through Melinda and you will not regret the jewellery you get from her and her team.

Raising funds for a special rescue

Noodle – the rescue poodle puppy

This sweet little pooch captured our hearts.

Smaller than a soft drink can when she was first introduced to us, she was rescued from a breeder who wasn’t prepared to go through the time, care and expense to deal with all of her medical issues.

We followed the story through Melbourne Animal Rescue’s Facebook page and gifted them with this pendant to help with their fundraising efforts.

Noodle has had many health challenges throughout her life, but she was cared for and adopted by a member of Melbourne Animal Rescue and is a much loved member of her family.


Happy Anniversary!

This simple and elegant pendant was the perfect 40th anniversary gift.

It was handmade in recycled 18 carat white gold and set with a stunning fair trade ruby.

Celebrating a new baby

Western Australian Emeralds and diamonds handmade in recycled palladium.

The birth of this couple’s first child prompted a special gift.

We had originally worked with the couple to create their engagement and wedding rings. The beautiful engagement ring was made from one of six pieces of emerald rough we were fortunate to acquire and have cut. It was found in a private cattle property in a remote part of Western Australia. Gem exploration did not continue, so this remains the only pieces we are likely to have.

It seemed fitting to use our last piece to make this sweet pendant. The design follows the details in the original engagement ring.
